Chef-Boy-I-Be Illinois' Ligurian Pasta
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
4 ingredients
4-6 servings
The Ligurian region of Italy is along the coast and contains some steep terrain. In addition to marvelous seafood dishes, the residents enjoy vegetables with their pasta, which while somewhat unusual, is very delicious. The combination of the pasta, with browned potato cubes and green beans in the recipe is brought together marvelously by the pesto sauce.
